If you’ve ever thought about having kids, you understand the responsibilities that come with this lifetime gift of life. There are thousands of people who jump into parenthood without much knowledge of the requirements and thus struggle raising their children. If you want to practice what it’s like having to take care of another life form with a mind of its own, that will grow into a completely different being, you should consider raising a pet. In this article we will be discussing how to raise a pet and will provide a list of some of the best pets you can have.
The Best Pets to Have
As we mentioned in the introduction raising a pet can be great practice to feel what it’s like raising a child. In no way are they the same thing, but it can give you the feeling of having a “baby” especially if you raise your pet since birth or a few weeks old. Some pets grow faster than other and even a few weeks and have a huge impact on its development. If you want to have a regular pet, nothing too crazy, then you can purchase a cat or a dog. Depending on your personality, one will be better than the other, but you will have to do some research on the type of dog or cat because their breeds will have different characteristics and thus different lifestyles. But if you’re looking for something out of the norm, here’s a list of some of the best pets to have:
- Bearded Dragon
- Fennec Fox
- Squirrel Monkey
The list can be a lot bigger, but these are some of the best pets to have. They require little maintenance and if you’re looking for something that won’t be as physically active as a dog or as vengeful as a cat, then you can be assured these will satisfy your needs. Each of these pets requires special care, however they will all need some sort of home (lean-to sheds for example), water, food, and a temperature similar to what they would experience in the wild. Depending on your personality you will either choose a bearded dragon, tarantula, or python if you prefer “scary” pets. The squirrel monkey, parrot, bunny, and hedgehog will fit you best if you want a “cute” pet, and the Fennec Fox or the Serval will suit your needs if you want something “exotic”.
In conclusion, in this article we discussed the topic of pets and why they are a great experience to have. Having a pet will prepare you for parenthood when the time comes since you will be taking care of a living organism that is relying on you for its safety and livelihood. You will have to do your own research on how to take care of each of the pets below, and you may even opt for something a lot more luxurious and exotic, if you have the money to do so.
